My favorite day of all time will always be January 17, 2013. The two most important humans to me graced this planet with their presence. While I was the last of my immediate family to find out about the twins (I’m totally over it, as you can tell), I won’t ever forget the moment on a Thursday late afternoon when Sister CBXB called and told me to pull over and stop driving.
I was going to be an aunt. Two times over.
It’s a good fucking thing that I was in my car because the decibel my already extremely not quiet voice reached piercing heights (my whisper is your regular “inside” voice). The sound most definitely would have caused anyone around me immediate deafness. I can’t believe my vehicle windows didn’t shatter.
I was so fucking happy, thrilled, excited, for myself (oh, and Sister CBXB and Bro-in-Law of course) discovering that I would forever get to spoil a little boy and a little girl. I loved them before ever laying eyes on them.
Then I laid eyes on them.
My heart basically exploded and in the very best way possible, I knew that life was never, ever going to be the same. They immediately became my number ones (my sister is my number two because she got married and had the kids, taking all pressure off of me – yay – and now I can adopt all of the cats in the world – double YAY).
Honoring the liveliest duo I know, here’s…
Cheers to SIX Years
It seemed like yesterday you arrived!
How can you be turning anything past five?
Were fun in overdrive.
Princess B, you have a flair for sparkles like me.
My sweet knight in shining armour you are, Prince B.
Getting a pic with the two of you has never been easy.
You’ve never not enjoyed giving my face graffiti.
There’s so much I’ve loved watching you do.
Yet so much more is in store for you two!
You’ve got me in your corner whenever you need.
Anyone hurts you,
they deal with me.
The loves of my life, it’s simple but true.
Most of all, I love you just for being you.
Your crazy aunt sends jazz hands, kisses and hugs.
As all of us are celebrating with you – six years of big love!
